NBA Rumors: Knicks Agree to Trade All-Star Kristaps Porzingis to Mavericks

While we wait for the Anthony Davis trade to drop, the Knicks and Mavericks stole the spotlight with a blockbuster deal on Thursday afternoon.

The Knicks have agreed to send Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks, multiple national outlets are reporting.

And as you might imagine, this trade is a doozy.

The Knicks will also send Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas in the reported deal.

So, what is Dallas giving up? Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan, Wesley Mathews and a future first-round pick.

Whoa. Now that's a blockbuster.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic's Shams Charania are reporting that the deal has been agreed to by both sides.

The New York Times' Marc Stein was the first to report that the two sides were nearing a trade.

Porzingis is recovering from a torn ACL and hasn't been cleared to play yet, but when he returns, he will join a Mavericks team that is fighting for a playoff spot. At 23-27, Dallas is 4.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Warriors are currently the No. 1 seed in the West.

If Porzingis comes back and helps the Mavericks get the No. 8 seed, that would be an interesting first-round matchup.
